  • Plan B is in the works for CMRR

    Apparently, there are plans in the works for an alternative solution to the Chemistry Metallurgy Research Replacement facility, which was deferred for five years by the administration.

    So what is Plan B exactly?

    The public is not sure yet.

    According to the Nuclear Weapons and Materials Monitor, the NNSA plans to use an existing facility at Los Alamos, the Radiological Laboratory/Utility/Office Building, as well as Lawrence Livermore’s Superblock Facility and the Device Assembly Facility (DAF) at the Nevada National Security Site, and Los Alamos was expected to analyze several key components of the project during a 60-day study.

  • LA sheriff seeks more enforcement duties

    After the Los Alamos County Council voted against a proposal to increase the Sheriff’s Department’s law enforcement duties earlier this year, Sheriff Marco Lucero is seeking to have the question put on the general election ballot.

    Lucero said he’s been fighting to have more law enforcement authority within the county since he took office nearly two years ago.  He said the Sheriff’s office has never gone out and done criminal law enforcement before, and that has been the concern for the last year and a half.

  • Building Hope

    During spring break, the United Church of Los Alamos sent a team of builders to Juaréz, Mexico to build homes for the less fortunate. “The trip went great! Better than could be expected,” Pastor Keith Lewis said. “Each year is a great year but 2012 was especially amazing. The freshmen and other newcomers stepped up and helped accomplish our work goals quickly, the group as a whole was fun to be with and our families were gracious as always.” Lewis likes to point out to the youth that when they arrived on Monday, the family had no home, but by the end of the week, they had a new home because of their efforts.
